Sen. Ted Cruz on Wednesday gave what some conservatives deemed America’s rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress.
The video: During Biden’s 65-minute address to an audience of 200 masked and socially distanced members of Congress and guests, Cruz, a Republican from Texas, appeared to fall asleep.
He was not alone: Sen. Mitt Romney, a Utah Republican, also appeared to doze off.
The response: Cruz praised Tim Scott of South Carolina for delivering the official GOP rebuttal, and gave a more succinct response.
The reaction: And while many liberals mocked Romney and Cruz, conservatives said their responses reflected the boring nature of Biden’s speech and represented the feelings of the American public.
- “He is all of us,” tweeted Newsmax host Benny Johnson in reference to Cruz nodding off.
